Abstract

The stability of two-dimensional natural convection of water near its maximum density inside a vertical rectangular enclosure is investigated via a series of direct numerical simulations. The physical nature of the instability mechanism responsible for the laminar buoyancy-driven flow transition from a steady state to an oscillatory state in the enclosure filled with cold water is discussed.
